“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Great price! Great location! Great place! Staff's friendly and housekeeping does a great job of cleaning up. The only thing is that the weekend brings bigger louder crowds which can be a challenge if you're a light sleeper.

I hosted a family reunion in Nanaimo this past weekend, for which the Coast Bastion Inn provided the accommodations. The central location, rooms, services and food were exceptional. The staff right from the planning stage a year ago through this weekend, including the reception, kitchen, waiters, cleaning, room booking and the sales manager were courteous, caring and diligent in their jobs. Kudos to all. I have no hesitation in recommending the Coast Bastion Inn to others.

Room Tip: The view from the higher corner suites is spectacular.

We stayed at the Coast Bastion Inn. It was very nice, staff was helpful and friendly. Great location. We were on the 8th floor, room #808 and had a great view. This was considered a premium room because it had a partial ocean view. Nice quiet room. Would definitely stay there again. Visit the waterfront marina area while in Nanaimo; it's quite nice. We enjoyed our visit.

Room Tip: Would recommend paying a little more for the premium room with a partial ocean view.

I don't expect too much from hotel staff when I stay at one. They are way too busy to take the time just to say hello. Not at the Coast Bastion Inn in Nanaimo!! Not only do they say hello, they say, "how are you?, have a nice day! Did you have a nice night?"etc. Walking in the front door of the hotel each night, I felt I was walking in the front door of my house. Thank you to the Nanaimo Coast Bastion Inn Staff for taking the time to make my mom and I feel so welcome here. Loved going for breakfast every day. Food was always so good but the staff even better!! I will always look to see if there is a Coast Bastion Inn in the place I will be staying cause that's where I would stay. My mom came here to meet grandchildren she has never met yet and to start the celebration of her 80th year and I thank you so much Nanaimo staff for making the start of her 80th year a special one!!!! WE shall see you again!!!

Room Tip: Room 805 does not have a full ocean view but you can see the water planes take off, see the boats co...

The Coast is a great hotel. The staff are very friendly, from the front desk, restaurant to housekeeping. Their superior rooms are awesome and have a fantastic view of their beautiful harbour.I strongly recommend you become a Coast Rewards member. They have the best points program. This is definately the place to stay in Nanaimo!

Room Tip: Become a Coast rewards member, book a standard room and use points to upgrade to a superior room wit...

We spent one day in Nanaimo and this hotel was the best option. The rooms are all renovated with very clean bathrooms and nice beds. Nice staff also.
We are difficult guests and saw some negative reviews on tripadvisor but noticed none of the complaints some posted.

We had a great experience staying at the Coast Bastion for our 28th wedding anniversary. The room was excellent, the front desk staff were very professional, helpful, knowledgable, and friendly. We were treated like family, and our desires were top priority.

Room Tip: As always, ask for a room with a view. Nanaimo is very beautiful to look at anytime of the day or ni...
